Root canal therapy or a root canal procedure can relieve the pain caused by diseased or injured pulp tissue in the center of the tooth. Many times, this tissue cannot repair itself and root canal therapy is required to save the tooth. After our dentist in Philadelphia perform a root canal treatment, you should have no lasting pain or sensitivity in the tooth and with good oral hygiene, the tooth should last for years. With most patients, our dentist in Philadelphia, use local anesthetics that will make your treatment as comfortable as possible. If you are experiencing tooth pain, please make an appointment as soon as possible.
